You'll be happy to know that people here are really not friendly, and in the long run, quite cold. They get more detestable over time. I will quote what I wrote in another thread: It's weird, when I was in high school, in the late '80s, we would come up to the city (I lived about 40 minutes south) and it seemed like an amazing place. There were all sorts of different people, black, latino, hippies, business types etc. It was cool. Now it is just a bunch of 30-45 year olds who say nothing but "I'm in finance, but I'm soooo into social justice. I'm totally going on a hike this weekend before I play volleyball down at Marina Green. I'm so stoked because I got a new custom fleece, and it will be perfect with my farty craft beer once we get to the end of our hike. I just wish I could embroider my fraternity letters along with "Hope and Change" on the inside."
